CAIDi (Curriculum Approvals Information Database online) is a UWA developed curriculum management system that is used for developing, changing, approving and managing curriculum information.

Who is this advice sheet for?

This advice sheet is designed to assist administrative staff in preparing agenda items using CAIDi reports. It describes the different types of reports that are available for governance and approval purposes.

CAIDi reports for preparing agenda items

Drafted proposals can be used while preparing agendas. By using CAIDi reports in the approval process, you will ensure accuracy of the curriculum data and minimise double-handling.

In a holistic approach, new course proposals should be processed as a package so that new units are approved in Phase 2 alongside the course rules and structure.
